Peanut Butter Red Velvet Blossom Cookies Recipe

Peanut Butter Red Velvet Blossom Cookies Recipe

Baking is one of my absolute favorite activities to do during the holidays. I bake tray after tray of various cookies for my family and friends. I also bake plenty of extras to donate to my local library holiday cookie sale. My husband’s personal favorite cookie is the peanut butter Kiss cookie (or peanut butter blossom). I also love cookies that feature a chocolate kiss on top. In addition to the classic peanut butter version, this year I also developed a scrumptious peanut butter red velvet blossom cookie.

  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 1/3 cups of white sugar, plus extra
  • 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter

  • 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup of all purpose flour

  4. Combine the flours, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder in a separate bowl.
  5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  6. Shape the cookie dough into 1-inch balls.

  10. Remove from the oven.
  11. Immediately press a chocolate Kiss into the centers of the baked cookies.
